This is a unit study on plate tectonics in geology or earth science subject. Attempt has been made to cover various points on different plate tectonics theories.
This unit in the form of PDF file includes engaging, colorful, informative, visually stimulating and eye-catching photos and diagrams as per the topic need which rarely fails to stimulate a lively class discussion.
The language is also kept as easier as so an average student can also understand it very easily.
My science units have been made to be both informative and visually stimulating for all students. It consists of 25 slides that are colorful. Pictures and diagrams are included that will greatly enhance your explanation to your students.
It also provides basic information about the Unit. You can also teach this unit as a PowerPoint presentation, you have to give it a try! Your students will enjoy it. Please view the Preview File to obtain a sense of my style, see how my unit is structured and evaluate my work.
The following topics are included in this Unit:
What are plate tectonics?
Physical and thermal structure and sub layer of Earth
Two types of crust (or tectonics plates)
Major and Minor Tectonic Plates
Theory of plate tectonics & Convection currents and Plate movements
Types of plate boundaries:
Continental drift theory and Alfred Wegener
Pangea (all land mass)
Wegener’s Evidence for Continental Drift:
1. Fit of the Continents
2. Fossil Evidence
3. Rock Type and Structural Similarities
4. Climate Evidence
Theory of Sea floor spreading
Mid-Ocean ridge & Mid-Atlantic ridge:
Harry Hess’s ideas on sea-floor spreading
Evidence of sea floor spreading:
1.Eruptions of molten material
2.Magnetic stripes in the rock of the ocean floor
3.The ages of the rocks themselves
This unit is in PDF format with the good quality of images. Download the preview file (which is pdf file)to get idea about the quality of images. Eye catching neat and colorful images will really create a deep interest for the students to learn and grasp the knowledge.
